Quiet was the night in the garden of eden, this realm which had faced many terrors, and yet, remained eternal, a grace most divine in its waking hours. Only time would whisper of the truth in fate, the glean of the silver thread that bound all things together. Even here, in this breathing giant, mortality was fleeting, a curse only bound to the young and fragile. The trees still grew grand in their goverance, a symphony of movement, subtle and constant, both comforting and profound. A steadfast guardian, a familiar face where all else had begun to change. Whether the future would weave a story anew, or fade to ash in a repeat of pride and greed, only time would tell. Yet, Aulë would not allow the weight of uncertainty, of fear, shroud his being into sombre thoughts that would turn even serenity sour. 


His path had wound through living canvas, his dance a silent art, until, he was drawn east, a errant spirit cast by the lull of tide and moon. It was always here, that he could take heart of the abrupt end of Ourania, of her great shores casting off into the deep, just one more land caught in the embrace of water and darkness. Here, where the secret depths of the unknown unfurled its tale even here, on the worlds surface, he could sit, and listen to the songs, attempting to decipher the derelict passions of an element that had never had a pull upon him. He who had always peered down, had never captured a glimpse of what elluded them in the calm, in the haze of deep waters where leviathans and transient souls ventured, emerging anew seaons later. 


Aulë, was a child of the sky, of the melody vast and clear, foreign and alike. It was not his nature, to come to the sea, to listen to its serenade and yearn for distant lands. Yet, he could love what it entailed, what its vast bounty meant to the people of the world. Devout to understanding, the star laid upon the earth at its edge, the sloping hills of the trees turning to the tawny expanse of sand and rock, his toes kissing that which was earth and that which was ocean, two worlds, vastly different, and yet, always touching. A tranquil harmony.

Much unlike Eden's new guest, Ravka had never found there to be much harmony in the sea. Instead of soothing, she was wild and endless, and instead of loving, she mounted the shoreline with a volatile desire to be one, digging caverns in its precious earth and crashing with violent waves against its shorelines. It was such, that as she lay by its edges, Ravka truly felt one with the beast before her, greedily inhaling the salt through her nostrils as her tail shifted up and down with the movement of the water.

Comparatively, she couldn't blame another soul for trying to unearth its wild beauty, even if it impeded on her desire to be alone. Meeting Taggard had been draining enough, even if she got a free meal out of it, and she decidedly studied the new male from a safe distance, cyan-silvery eyes trailing skin that seemed almost like a canvas for the galaxy to shift and explore down on earth. Shining alluringly in the night, he was small, but explosive all the same, soft feathers contrasting the nebula that appeared to burst from his lower back, leading into a long silky tail that left the earthen girl with a tinge of jealousy. 

Nevertheless she focused her gaze back on the sea, still preferring its feral beauty over something she could never reach anyway. Or so she told herself.

By the grace of Artemis' rule, the ocean cast a shroud of oblivion, a mirror to the sky above. It cradled the void, embracing it for what it truly was, and for a long while, Aulë had believed that perhaps the sea was a glimpse of the gentle darkness here on earth. All things were embraced by death, a constant companion to a fledgling life, made to illuminate the inner warmth, the spark that appeared so fragile amidst the darkness. Yet, it was just a part of creation, a tiny existence that was precious and fleeting. To see its absence was to appreciate the light all the more, coveting it as that which was most holy and beloved. Vast was the sea, but there were such great awnings of nothingness there, open waters with not a whisper, the waters still, a pulse of life a ripple that faded off for miles. It was only here, at the shore, where the depths came to meet the land, that its true power showed, crying in triumph for meeting its equal.


Aulës' fur laid dark upon his breast, beaded with gems of water, and each sigh of the parched breeze left his body quaking in the nightly chill. Yet, he could not back away, not yet, listening to the roll and hum of the waters, watching as the white caps rose as ghosts in the dark, bleached beneath the light of the moon that drew ever higher into the sky, hung as a totem to the spirits that thrived in this hidden world. It was his intent in the feeling, the all consuming allure to the unknown, that caught her silhouette on the edge of darkness. A shadow, haloed by seams of light, swaying with the dance of the tide. Their voice had not joined in the procession of sounds, and for a moment, Aulë questioned leaving them to their silence.


But he could feel their attentions, a fleeting awareness of eyes in the deep, however bare their touch was. A star who had watched the world from afar for so long, it was a familiar distance, one that had ached and filled him with a want of that just beyond his grasp. The world was full of many souls, beings with unique desires, unique needs, and even now, he was still learning what it meant to be alive. His tail floated upon the seafoam and waves, drawn out to the depths, only to curl lovingly upon the shore. "What is it like, to live amongst the waves? Have you found your world changing, like ours has?"

It was an inevitability.

Closeness meant to indulge in conversation, or so it was for the common wolf and equine the beachgoer ran into, and while there was disappointment in that notion she couldn't help but feel curious for the creature beside her all the same - a man that fell from the heavens only to be found here, entertaining a girl birthed from the seas.

Nevertheless, the woman's words were still laced with their usual coolness, distant and ultimately cold in nature. "The sea doesn't care for our mortal bickering, nor will she change to accompany it." She stated matter-of-factly, eyes still trained on the incoming waves as if they would somehow back up the statement. "And you, fallen star, did they cast you from the heavens for shining too bright?" Looking over then, someone unbeknownst to her ways might find there to be unkindness in the words, though she would protest it to be nothing but innocent curiosity.
